Air Force Expands Adoption of Bharosa Online Security Solutions

SANTA CLARA, CA and WARNER ROBINS, GA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 20, 2006 --The United States Air Force today announced it has agreed to procure additional software licenses from Bharosa, Inc., a global provider of secure multifactor authentication solutions, in order to use Bharosa technology even more broadly to secure Air Force operations. The Air Force conducts highly sensitive online operations requiring the strongest access management solutions available.

New applications of the Bharosa technology will include securing online development sites for two of the Air Force's major weapon systems. Currently, Bharosa Authenticator and Tracker products are licensed by the Air Force to secure a variety of online logistics and engineering applications, ranging from aircraft monitoring to workflow collaboration among Air Force engineers.

Bharosa's Tracker product monitors and scores risk and detects online fraud. Together, these Bharosa products offer security strengths characteristic of hardware combined with the flexibility, affordability and ease of use of the Web.

"We are pleased our technology will be able to address a new set of critical security needs for the Air Force," said Thomas Varghese, president and CTO of Bharosa.
